A while ago I was reading a book (forget but could probably find it), where the author told a story of his really bad childhood stuttering problem. He couldn't say anything stutter-free, no matter how hard he tried to keep calm. One day he had missed the school bus and was without a ride home. Thinking of ways to get home he formulated a plan to go to a city bus stop and attempt to board even though he had no money, because the driver would surely feel sorry for a stuttering stranded child. As I'm sure you've guessed by now, when the bus finally came and he tried to show how helpless and dire his situation was, he didn't stutter!so I am going to stop making the effort. Pretty sure I'm going to stop reaching out and just do everything on my own for a while.
I am cutting them out and starting over.
I don't know I'm pretty good with rejection. Although my SA is pretty weak so maybe I don't count. To the OP: getting rejected from them means they were never good enough for you and you never really wanted to be friends with them anyway. They're the ones missing out right?Rejection is a part of life for everyone, we SAers just react to it stronger.
